1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Looks like they had to do it impromptu if they just shot it at The News. Still, fall looked pretty solid. There were a couple of great pieces that Mauro picked up that weren't in these photos which was kind of a pity.

    You must wear things rather relaxed. I'm 6'/165lbs and I wear a M in BoO. I can't imagine someone at 5'8, 135lbs soaking wet would want to wear the same size unless they were sizing up one or two.


    huh? the geller pieces i own in 48 fit super slim (maybe that model fit smaller)...i usually wear S in most other dress shirts, for example j crew.
    i guess ill go with S then...

    Yea, thats what im trying to avoid. And yes the pit to pit comparison made sense. I think I will just go with a L. A quick google search made it seem like I should be able to have it tailored if it ends up being a little loose. Maybe I will buy in M and L and sell the ones that dont fit. I hate shopping for clothes online.
    I wanted to avoid tailoring because at the pricepoint they are charging for some of the plain looking solids/oxfords to have it additionally needing tailoring to fit I thought was not worth it (might as well buy some J crew, gap, banana republic stuff on clearance and have them altered though the quality of the boo is definately better). I was even hesitant to buy at the $90 pricepoint because to be honest many of the boo shirts are somewhat by nature plain and not really that distinctive besides the cut and most average folks (non sf people) will just think that some guy bought a J Crew shirt that was "too small" Since I don't have much time to goto the tailor too much (though he is good Italian one) I felt like what the hell, I'll wear them till I outgrow them/shrink and it seems that Boo is popular enough so that somebody will buy them off you if you happen to not like them.

    looks like kanye has hopped on the boo bandwagon: http://www.observer.com/2009/o2/kany...d-of-outsiders
    Fairly sure this is a band overdyed (actually, they had it at the gilt sale, heh) [​IMG] I've seen him rock it on some magazine covers before too

    This is great news. I can tell everyone that Kanye wears my shoes and Wale wears my jeans.
